Re: upgrading 8130 pearl to 4.5

All seems to be good now, though still a few bugs.

 

Sometimes after disconnecting from DM the phone reboots when disconnected from the USB or from a charger.

 

DM will detect the BB if it is connected before you start DM, but won't detect the BB if it is connected after DM is started (locked or unlocked)

 

Possibly not a bug but a new feature;  the little plug on the display that used to come up whenever the BB was connected (usb or charger) now only seems to come up when the BB is actually charging.  If the battery is fully charged, the plug appears for only a couple of seconds and then goes away.

 

Other than the above connection probems, everything seems to be working.  Calls, email (HTML), etc.

 

will update if I can get a handle on the issues.

Re: upgrading 8130 pearl to 4.5

okay,

 

still having issues.

 

phone won't charge neither through USB nor AC adapter.  Intermittently.  Also won't connect to DM.  2 different pc's.  Can't figure out what it needs to connect.

 

I know the hardware is Ok.  it works perfectly when loaded with os4.3.

Re: upgrading 8130 pearl to 4.5 - Failure

Well, I got the 4.5 os on the phone and it works for 98% of the functions.  The 2% is charging.  Could not get the little beastie to charge at all (or connect to the pc).  I tried charging by usb, adapter, while the BB was turned off, locked, unlocked, different pc's, different usb port, different adapter.

 

Gave up.  Reloaded 4.3.  everything works fine.  Connects every time.  Charges on any charge device.

 

Any body out there from RIM?  Is there a way to check hardware vintage on the BB to check if there is an incompatibility with the 4.5 os?  So many problems with 4.5, no problems with 4.3 (other that lack of html email, which is the main reason I was trying to upgrade?
